The Samsung Galaxy Note which will be sold by AT&T will be a little bit different from the internationally-launched version. Fret not though, for the screen is still the same 5.3-inch 1280×800 Super AMOLED HD affair.
The processor however won’t be Samsung’s own Exynos, but a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon unit. This swap is similar with what happened with T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II, yet the reasons for it are unclear. Perhaps Samsung simply isn’t able to manufacture enough of its own processors.
Anyway, the model number for the AT&T device will be SGH-I717, and it will come with support for 4G LTE connectivity. The final difference between this model and the international one consists in the four-button layout which is so loved in the US and is present on AT&T’s Galaxy Note as you can see in the image above.
We don’t know anything about when AT&T plans on releasing this beast, but the official announcement will probably come during CES in January. So stay tuned.
